Tottenham Hotspur are gearing up for a busy summer.

After falling short of expectations in the Premier League they face what could be a big rebuilding job to put them back among England's elite.

The objective at the start of the season was to achieve at place in the top four at least, while also holding an outside chance of challenging for the Premier League title.

But that simply hasn't happened.

Despite Jose Mourinho coming in, the North London side have struggled to recover from a disjointed start to the season.

Mourinho is a proven winner, and he'll be doing everything in his power to ensure that next season is a vast improvement.

If that's to happen, Tottenham will almost certainly need to enter the transfer market.

Scoring goals has been a bit of an issue this term and so signing a player to provide competition for Harry Kane could be key.

The England striker is very much the jewel in the Spurs crown, but even the best players need to competition to ease the workload.

Several strikers have already been linked, but a fresh report has provided a very interesting option for Jose Mourinho.

According to The Sun, Spurs are interested in Callum Wilson.

The Bournemouth striker is said to be available after Bournemouth's disappointing campaign.

With Wilson thought to be on a wage of £110k per week, it's claimed that the Cherries will look to offload the frontman this summer as they look to trim the wage bill.

That means that Tottenham could only have to pay in the region of £10million to get a deal done.

They're not the only side that are interested though, with Newcastle United and Leicester City both previously linked.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This would be a great move if Tottenham could pull it off.

Callum Wilson is proven at Premier League level and will definitely get a move to another top flight club.

Given his credentials, he could be a very shrewd addition as a back up to Harry Kane at Spurs, and I'm sure he'd get plenty of goals.

The only issue is whether he would be happy to play reserve to Kane, as Wilson is more than capable of leading the line for a side in the top flight.

That's a decision for Callum Wilson to make.

But for Spurs, if they can agree a deal of around £10million then that would be good business and a deal that represents very little risk for the fee discussed.
